Super Bowl History

Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed for 42 yards and 3 touchdowns in 19 carries in a victory over the Cardinals. He also scored on two 2-point conversions. Then Gurley had a funny exchange with a reporter about his fantasy owners.

But you know, that's why I didn't want to come back in after the cramp. Let's make sure this man gets the recognition he deserves!!!

Durant just might get an invitation. Saquon Barkley tied the single game record for receptions by a rookie with 14, according to Elias.

He now has 16 catches in two games. He's on pace for receptions. Jerry Jones knows how big the Cowboys' win against the Giants was even if it was Week 2. Jones knew the Cowboys had to avoid an start. Not any more for Dak Prescott but it was on the line tonight.

He's played in two regular season game… twitter. Old friends still get to line it up! It was overshadowed some by the Broncos' two-minute drive on offense to win the game Sunday -- a victory over the Oakland Raiders -- but outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett's block of a Raiders' extra point in the second quarter turned out to be the difference. The guys inside, Derek Wolfe, and I think Philly safety Will Parks outside, they got the eyes of the tackle, the tight end and the guard.

I swam, and I was free,'' Barrett said. At the time the Raiders' touchdown, with the blocked extra point, had given Oakland a lead at halftime. Broncos quarterback Case Keenum said: It's little plays like that. You never know in this league. The Cowboys offense tailed off after a fast start but the defense was able to limit Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr.

The Cowboys avoided the dreaded start and actually find themselves atop the NFC East standings with a division win. Philadelphia will start planning its defence knowing its Super Bowl victory came without its best player. New England needed a touchdown for its first lead of the game and the Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski connection delivered again. New England dialled up its defence as it looked to end the game but the Eagles just kept fighting.

Philly coach Doug Pederson continued to be willing to take big risks, refusing to punt on fourth down at midfield. He was rewarded as Foles hit Zach Ertz for a first down. After 14 plays and 75 yards, Foles hit Zach Ertz for an yard touchdown and Philly was back in front. The Eagles gained four yards on three running plays as they positioned themselves for a field goal. Jake Elliott made no mistake from 46 yards to make it an eight-point game with 65 seconds on the clock.

He kept the Pats alive by hitting Danny Amendola on fourth down but the clock was down to 26 seconds and they were still 78 yards from the end zone. Brady sent a high ball to the end zone but it was broken up as Philly held on. Tom Brady connected repeatedly with tight end Rob Gronkowski, including a short touchdown pass, to begin the New England revival. Brady actually missed a wide open Gronk on the first play of the second half, before hitting him four times for gains of 25, 24, eight and five yards to make it Brady has already thrown for yards and is well within reach of his Super Bowl record of from a year ago.

Foles was playing pretty good too though. Two more key third down completions put the Eagles within sight of the end zone and that was all Foles needed as he hit Corey Clement for a yard touchdown catch. The wild end-to-end action continued as Brady took his tally past yards. New England went 75 yards in seven plays to score via a Chris Hogan reception. Foles and the Eagles offence went back to work, reaching the New England yard line as time expired.

With a quarter to play, the teams had already combined for the most yards ever in a Super Bowl. Gisele Bundchen, the supermodel wife of New England quarterback Tom Brady, found herself the target of relentless scorn after her husband failed to haul in an attempted catch in the first half of the Super Bowl.

Several social media users revived the quote after Brady was unable to catch the ball after being targeted by receiver Danny Amendola on a trick play today that likely would have ended in a touchdown. Gisele, maybe Tom can't catch the ball at all.

Guess Gisele Bundchen was right a few years ago Philadelphia produced its own piece of genius to catch the New England defence off guard — and unlike Brady, Foles made no mistake.

The play of the year. He can catch it, Gisele!!!! Nick Foles can throw and catch the ball. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Gisele. New England's Ryan Allen mishandles the ball. New England finished emptyhanded after an eight-play yard drive courtesy of a missed Steve Gostkowski field goal.

A superb open field tackle by Rodney McLeod, who caught Brandin Cooks as he attempted to leap over him, ended the Pats drive.

But punter Ryan Allen mishandled a low snap by Joe Cardona and the delay in placing the ball for Gostkowski appeared to put off the kicker, who sent a reverse torpedo wide left. Snap was a bit low for Ryan Allen there.. Belichick going to murder someone nothappyjan. Brady immediately took the Pats back into Eagles territory by connecting with Cooks for 23 yards. Cooks was violently upended at the end of the play and ruled out of the game.

The drive stalled and New England turned the ball over on downs after deciding to go for it at fourth-and-five instead of kicking what would have been about a yard field goal. RIP Brandin Cooks pic. This time the Eagles made the champs pay. Foles refound his mojo by hitting tight end Zach Ertz on a crucial third-down play before connecting with Alshon Jeffery for a yard gain.

It was left to LaGarrette Blount to finish the job as he reeled off a yard run down the left touchline to make it a two-score game.

Because of their earlier missed extra point Philly went for a two-point conversion but Foles pass to Jeffery was incomplete. Brady continued to have little problem moving the ball against the Eagles top-ranked defence as Rex Burkhead picked up 46 yards on a screen play. But the Eagles made a stand on their yard line, forcing New England to settle for a field goal, which Gostkowski nailed.

Brady continued to pass the ball like the reigning league MVP as he took his team deep into Eagles territory with a yard strike to Chris Hogan.
